This is a sampling of my intent to get my act a bit cleaner of what I ingest. Been reading books, just finished watching “Food, Inc.” and I have the best of intentions to follow through with eating the best I can eat. I don’t want to be incinerated at such a terrible young age. I am just starting to open my eyes to the brave new world I am facing and I need to be ready, strong and alert.
Need to hurry up with this posting. My favorite novela “Teresa”, the main character is so, I wish I could find a word to describe her, well…she is such a mean person, but like everybody else sometimes I feel sorry for her. Oh, yes, the novela is coming up soon and that’s the only one I watch live. Others I record to watch as I please.
Yes, this posting is about eating healthier than I am already doing. I almost forgot. I am planning on steaming a lot of stuff. Not too much oil or fats in this new venture, but you know I cannot leave my favorite, extra virgin olive oil. Need something to make my hair shiny, and the skin, of course.
Today, I did not steam a thing. Had cereal and blueberries for dinner, because watching the documentary about how the industry abuses the animals and workers took me to dinner time. Tomorrow, no excuses. I am looking forward to maybe becoming a vegan. Need to know how to correctly pronounce that word.
I am feeling good about making this conscious decision because I feel I am helping myself, the environment, and of course, the longer I am around, the more postings I can do. That’s a good thing. Let me share the following; if every American simply reduced chicken consumption by one meal per week, the carbon dioxide savings would be equivalent to removing 500,000 cars from the road.
So…it was today…7 September, 2011…a day of new beginnings of cleaner eating.
Your Happy Contessa
